GENEVA — Eleven luxury vehicles and sports cars belonging to the son of Equatorial Guinea’s president have been seized in Geneva as part of a preliminary investigation into alleged corruption, authorities said Thursday.

L’Hebdo magazine reported on its Web site that the vehicles included a Bugatti Veyron valued at 2 million euros ($2.2 million), and a Swedish-made Koenigsegg One:1. Koenigsegg spokesman Steven Wade said only seven of those models have been produced at a base price of $2.8 million.

Vincent Derouand, another spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, provided a list of the seized vehicles later Thursday that also included at least three Ferraris, a McLaren P1, and an Aston Martin One77.

Obiang is facing a preliminary investigation in Switzerland in connection with a case in neighboring France, where he faces trial for alleged misspending of public funds.
